Build your own VMware EUC SAAS Lab

Overview :

VMware in EMEA have put together specialist teams for internal product and integration support in the complex EUC arena. These teams are called P.A.C.T. (Product Area Champion Team). As part of this initiative the VMware Identity Manager Product Area Champion Team as a start have also wanted to foster help on getting one started.

One of the Team members Stavros Charalambous has worked out a fantastic way to build his own EUC SAAS lab.  He kindly worked with me as the author of this document to build my own 100% EUC SAAS lab. Whilst building my lab we documented the steps. We are hoping this will encourage more in the EUC community to play with VMware technologies and with a view to fostering confidence when working with VMware diverse product stack

As the lab is 100% SAAS, there are several advantages some being that one does not have to worry about all the issues about having your own on premise lab for example, electricity costs, space, noise and unnecessary time wasted on things like split DNS, hardware, capacity. etc

We have to be 100% clear that this has been put together here has to be followed circumspectly. Once this SAAS platform is in place it would give the individual the ability to expand their knowledge round the integration of VMware Identity Manager , WorkspaceONE UEM and SAAS solution out there. We are planning on follow up articles to this where we cover the integrations of Office 365, OKTA PING and also possibly leveraging platforms other than Azure for example Amazon Web Services.

Revisions of this document will be made as we learn and gain experience, we are hoping that by sharing this information it will contribute to a spirit of Collaboration and sharing.

We also intend writing follow-on articles to this document.


The primary audience the document is focussing are VMware Internal SE and PSO and VMware Partners. We however realize that a very broad audience could benefit from pieces or the entire document and therefore we are making this publicly available
